Super sweet surprise proposal and engagement session at the Eiffel Tower
This was a super sweet surprise proposal and engagement session at the Eiffel Tower, on a beautiful, sunny day. Not only did we have a beautiful day, but take a look at the lady here, her name is Mika, and she was absolutely stunning. I instantly fell in love with her dress and her shoes. It was colorful and feminine and romantic, and perfect for summer. It’s the kind of dress I’d love for myself, and she wore it so well. I was immediately struck by her, she also had a spirit about her that was difficult to describe. No wonder Chris fell in love with her.
Photographing couples is my “jam” as they say. And my jelly, and my peanut butter…well, you get the point. There is something so magical about photographing couples in love in Paris. I’m already in love with Paris, and have been for years, but seeing Paris daily through my camera lens and through the eyes of couples in love is something really, really special.
In addition to photographing engagements, honeymoons, anniversaries and “just because” couples love sessions, I’m a specialist in Paris surprise proposals. A Paris surprise proposal photographer. It’s my joy to work with gentlemen and ladies coming to Paris who wish to propose marriage to the one they love. I help them locate the perfect location, coordinate logistics, and of course, then I’m there to capture the big moment, and also create some beautiful Paris engagement photos.
Chris contacted me about planning his Paris surprise proposal. He wanted it to be special, and with a good view of the Eiffel Tower. So we settled on the Trocadero area of Paris, with a grand view of the Eiffel Tower. He and Mika were visiting from Canada. I was there waiting for them bright and early at Trocadero, before the tourist crowds descend. Mika had no idea Chris was going to propose, and she was overcome with emotion. What happens when my clients are overcome with emotion? I become overcome with emotion! It’s really hard sometimes to keep the tears of happiness from dribbling down my cheeks, because I’m truly so happy for my couples.
No really, I am and I take it to the extreme. I have what’s called an HSP, aka Highly Sensitive Personality. Things that don’t bother others, bother me. Things that don’t make other people emotional, make me emotional. How could you not get a tear in your eye when you see how happy Mika is?
It was my blessing and good fortune to have the opportunity to photograph both Chris and Mika’s surprise proposal in Paris and their mini engagement session. This morning will stay with me for a long time, and wish for them so much happiness, just like they felt on this memorable day in Paris.
